Queens Park Rangers Football Club (usually referred to as QPR) is an English professional football club, based in Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham, west London. As the 2010-11 Football League Championship champions, they now play in the top tier of English football the Premier League, for the first time in 15 years. Other honors include winning the League Cup in 1967, being runners-up in the old First Division in 1975–76 and reaching the final of the FA Cup in 1982.
QPR was formed in 1882, when a team known as St Jude’s merged with Christchurch Rangers. The resulting team was called Queens Park Rangers, because most of the players came from the Queen’s Park area of North-West London. Their traditional colors are blue and white. In the early years after the club’s formation in their original home of Queen’s Park, games were played at many different grounds until finally the club settled into their current location at Loftus Road. QPR maintain long-standing rivalries with several other clubs in the area. The most notable of these are Chelsea, Fulham and Brentford, with whom they contest what are known as West London derbies. The club has been managed by Neil Warnock since March 2010. QPR have had some great players and managers in the past and look to be building a team that can stay in the Premiership.
